That's a pretty lower-range case if I may say so, maybe get something better like the CM Storm Enforcer or HAF

well it's not such a bad case IMO I like the nzxt source 210 elite (the non elite one I have and it's ok and I bought my self a elite version and I like it better)

well since he is getting a cheaper case

1- either it's the only one he can afford with his budget
2- or he likes it

Thinking more space at the moment.

There really big cases, I do have a xigamtek midguard which at this present time is sitting to my right with a PII 955 and Gigabyte GA-880 GMA USB3 (motherboard 7 months old) running nice and cool, just straight out of BF3.

To my left switched off is the coolermaster 330:( I was planning to put this system into a standard ATX tower below)
Sempron 140
ASUS M3N78PRO (maybe switch to the Gigabyte)
Onboard graphics(connected VGA to 22" display)
3GB RAM DDR2( will need to get a cheap stick of DDR3 if I switch)

Intel parts should be coming tomorrow I was hoping to get away with the smaller case.

Thinking maybe midguard: Sell for £150 below(the bits i'm left over with)
PII 955 phenom
Vista home premium OEM tied to this board.(no hard drive)
ASUS M3N78PRO(onboard)
3GB RAM DDR2
No graphics card

I tried the coolermaster 330 with the above intel spec seemed ok but with the summer coming up. I had a change of heart and went back to the midguard.

The CPU cooler I am using at the moment is the Akasa AK-968 for the sandybridge and it's push pin. They are fully pushed in to the motherboard. My only fear is if the family brush across the front of the case they will come loose.

Is there any bolt kits I can buy for this cooler? I have googled it can't seem to find anything. A couple of years ago might have been longer I did have an akasa evo blue on an am2 board. I still might have the bolt kit for that. Could that do the job if I find it?
